ristretto 0.8.2 not opening .pnm files?

In ArchLinux, I was unable to open .pnm files in ristretto 0.8.2.   Downgrading to ver 0.8.1 immediately solved this problem.

I'm wondering whether this is a bug in ristretto 0.8.2 itself, or specifically in the Arch Community package.  Has this problem occurred in other distros?

Re: ristretto 0.8.2 not opening .pnm files?

Oddly enough, this works for me in Xubuntu with 0.8.2 but not in Arch. One of the changes in 0.8.2 was for ristretto to start detecting image types using mime types and libmagic instead of extensions. This is probably what broke it. The question is, how did Xubuntu get around this?

Just downgraded the "file" (libmagic) package to 5.30-1 and it also works. My guess is it's a regression in the file package that ristretto has a hard dependency on since 0.8.2 that causes the problem. Xubuntu 17.04 is still on 5.29.

Re: ristretto 0.8.2 not opening .pnm files?

Today I upgraded ristretto back to 0.8.2.  Also, file was included among today's upgrades (now file 5.32-1).

After these upgrades ristretto is able to open .pnm files.

Here on debian i have imagemagick 5.32 and ristretto 0.8.2 and its unable to open any ascii based image format like pnm, xpm and xbm. tumbler is able to create previews for them except for the xbm file - imagemagick itself can open all of them...


$ aptitude why gnome   
Unable to find a reason to install gnome.

regards, ssf

What version of the "file" package are you running? The bug was in the initial 5.32 version of that package.
